&copy; 2014 Project Lead The Way, Inc.
Design Specifications
Design a combinational logic circuit that meets the
following design specifications:
• There are three (3) three inputs and seven (7) outputs.
• As the inputs count from 000 to 111, the outputs (a – g) will generate
the logic to display a date of birth (DOB) on a 7-segment display.
• The 7-segment display is a common cathode display.
• The DOB will be displayed in the MM-DD-YY format.
